Bursa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BTSO) President İbrahim Burkay stated that they expect new support as the business world after the ‘complete closure’ decision taken within the scope of coronavirus measures.
Chairman Burkay recalled the 17-day full closure decision that will last until the end of the holiday and said,“ The economic problems of our sectors that have to suspend or limit their services together with the full closure will deepen. Additional support needs to be mobilized quickly so that we can maintain social welfare and maintain a healthy business life. In this context, I would like to repeat our call to provide cash grant support instead of low-cost loans to businesses whose activities, especially in the food and beverage services and retail sector, have been suspended and whose income has disappeared completely.
“RAW MATERIALS” INCREASE IN PRICES INCREASED COSTS “
Stating that they demand that the short-time work allowance that protects businesses and employees from the destructive effects of the pandemic continue until the end of the year, Chairman Burkay said, We expect the necessary support mechanisms to be activated for our chamber member businesses, which are deprived of support for access to credit and finance. High increase in raw material prices and delayed shipments in the absence of containers increase the costs of our companies. We expect government support against the increase in container and freight costs of our exporters. As the business world, while struggling with the heavy burden of pandemic conditions, we demand that the 5-point increase in corporate tax, which is a new obstacle for our investors, be reconsidered ”.
THE REQUEST FOR RENTAL ARRANGEMENT CONTAINS A REASONABLE SOLUTION FOR ALL PARTIES
Passing the draft law prepared by the Arbitration and Mediation Center on the planned lease arrangement for businesses that have been closed due to the pandemic. Stating that they submitted this year to the Ministry of Justice, Burkay said, “Dividing the force majeure burden between the parties in terms of rent payments of our enterprises that are closed within the scope of epidemic measures and which are limited; We believe that a system where the tenant, tenant and the state will receive the same share will be the most reasonable solution for all parties. Expressing that very important works have been carried out to add value to the city and the country’s economy thanks to the solidarity and solidarity, he thanked the members of the board of directors and council.
